Yesterday was our denomination's birthday (PCEA born 10th October,1846). It would be good to pray for renewal of the vision of our founders - men like William McIntyre (pictured here) and James Forbes. Perhaps we should think in terms of an Annual Missions-giving Day to pull us together in reaching out.
Here are some other points for prayer:
Above all, we and our nation need an outpouring of God's Spirit to change our present situation and bring new life.
Application forms are now available to download for the PCEA Family Camp, 30 December, 2014 to 2nd January, 2015. Follow the link, download the form, fill it in and return it to the Camp organisers. You can check out the campsite on a video from a previous post - Elanora Conference Centre. Please note that the picture on the home page (shown above) is not intended to be an indication of what is going to happen at the camp, rather a pictorial representation of the events and imagery found in the book of Isaiah.
It's not exactly mortification of the flesh, but the ladies in the Ulverstone Church apparently enjoyed a great time of fellowship and pampering at a recent special event. (It is good to enjoy the blessings that we have from the Lord, by the way). Find out about the Ladies' Pampering Day in the latest edtion of The Presbyterian Banner .
The PCEA Camp will be hosted at Elanora Conference Centre. Have a peek at this short video to see what the place is like. You can also go to their website for more details on the venue, as well as maps and a photo gallery. It looks wonderfully comfortable.
The PCEA Church-wide camp is on again. It is to take place at the Elanora Heights Conference Centre, Elanora Heights in Sydney, Tuesday 30th December, 2014 to Friday 2nd January, 2015. The latest issue of The Banner has some details. We hope that you will pencil this in - no, scribe it with a pen of iron - into your diaries. The Camps are wonderful times of fellowship and edification, growing in God's word. Application forms and more details will follow soon. Come and spend New Years Day with your brothers and sisters in Christ!
